Sudden Death at Woodward.
Never have the people of Wood
ward received a greater shock i
than they did about 4 o'clock r
a. M. on Wednesday last, by the y
announcement that Mrs. T. W.
Brice, Sr., one of the most esti- s
mable ladies of the commuity, f
had suddenly died at her resi- v
The circumstances of her death '
as we have learned them, are
as follows: She was aroused t
about 3 o'clock to go to one of
the members of the family, who
was ill, and when in the act of
dressing, passed away. Medical
aid was quickly summoned, but
too late. Her spirit had flown to
the God who gave it. She was
beyond all earthly help. Thus 1
has fallen one of the most de
voted wives, the kindest of moth
ers. the purest of Christians, and
most exemplary women of this
community; and most sincerely
do the sympathies of all go out
to the husband and children in
their sudden and irreparable be
All the children were present
at the funeral, which took place
at Concord church, besides a
large concourse of friends.
The floral tokens were many
and beautiful, the grave was one
mass of blooms. May grace from
on high be given to the sorely
stricken family to sustain them
in their sad affliction.

They All Drank.
A number of years ago a certain
